Sky News Journalist Alex Crawford and camera crew join fleeing Syrians as they escape Turkey for the relative peace of the Greek island of Lesbos.
The ten minute video shows the situation in Turkey as people smugglers and market sellers have turned the flight from Syria into a regularised business. It also shares the terror for refugees crossing that final hurdle as the Turkish coast guard appears and fires live rounds over their heads.
One refugee, in tears as they approach the Greek island speaks for so many on board:
“Thank you Almania, thank you Germany, thank you. Thank you my heart, thank you.”
There is a public demo tomorrow (Sept. 12th) to call on Irish Govt. to take more refugees.
